While my practice is imperative, I still can’t take it too seriously.” A former Equinox teacher, for several years Amy’s classes were filled with people who appreciated her lighthearted, lifelong approach to the practice, allowing everyone to feel relaxed and at ease. She considers herself a student first and simply shares her practice.
